Balchem Corporation, a global specialty ingredients company focused on nutrition and health, acquired Cardinal Associates last year. Cardinal Associates operates as Bergstrom Nutrition, a leading science-based manufacturer of methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), based in Vancouver, Washington.
MSM is a widely used nutritional ingredient with strong scientific evidence supporting its benefits for healthy joints, coat, skin and nails. Bergstrom Nutrition’s MSM brands OptiMSM and PurforMSM deliver the highest quality and purity MSM on the global market.
As the MSM market leader, Bergstrom Nutrition has excelled in advancing the science and presence of MSM globally. The addition of OptiMSM and PurforMSM products to our portfolio is a natural fit with our innovative PetShure line of specialty nutrients, functional ingredients and unique sensory inclusions and further complements our portfolios of PuraChol Choline and KeyShure Chelated Mineral products for a wide range of companion animals and equine.
As we work through the transition period, please know that the Balchem Animal Nutrition and Health team is committed to providing world-class service for your business. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our team members for direct assistance.
Balchem will include Bergstrom Nutrition in its Human Nutrition and Health sector as well as its Animal Nutrition and Health sector to help meet their overall goal of making the world a healthier place to live for humans and animals.
